I guess I uploaded these in a random order. Yikes! Anyway, I hope Eric had a great day with family and friends. PS I really do make that grumpy, grumpy face while playing the wii or any game for that matter. I just like to win and if I dont.... SORRY for whatever happens next. Hehe.
Love you Eric and love you Atencio family (which now includes me!)

.... And every time I watch it I cry and cry and cry. Not out of sadness but of a feeling I cannot even begin to describe. Well actually that's a lie. It's a feeling of overwhelming love and joy. Happiness in knowing that no matter who I was, who I am or who I will be the most perfect parts of me are living and breathing the life they so deserve. I love Sky and Solee and Malen and Wendy very, very, very much. I'll never ever, ever, ever regret....

Sometimes I forget that I love black and white photos. I forget that most of my inspiration comes in BW. Having a big ol' fancy camera and seeing everything in perfect color can be a bit distracting. Anyway, here are three pics that I took from a while back. I took them with the fancy camera thinking about BW.
Sam, you and your BW pics are my heroes!

Liana, James, Damon, Sami and Brenden came into town this weekend. Kevin is leaving for the Airforce boot camp next week. And then him and Tiff are off to Florida. So it was nice to have some of us together.
Obviously missing from this was Eric. He had to work. Christopher, he's off being a navy man. Emily, off being a navy wife. And Krysia, off being young in Texas. I often wonder if we will ever ALL be in the same place again. Either way we always end up smiling and having a wonderful time.

Something my mother always told me:
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt
This is a lot easier said than done. As a matter of fact I think I constantly give permission to people to make me feel like I am an awful person. I dont know why. Because I really do know that they are WRONG.
I am a good, honest and loving person. And there are many people in my life that can attest to this. Today I decided that I wont ever, EVER, EVER give anyone permission to make me feel less than I know that I am ever again. Wish me luck because it wont be easy!

Terrible Yellow Eyes a website with art inspired from Where the Wild Things Are!
That website led me to:
Chicken Nugget Lemon Tooty a website of really cute and sometimes amazing art by three kids!
That website led me to:
Illustration Friday a website for creative people with weekly themes! Great idea!
